Ukrainian forces fired US-made HIMARS rockets on Alchevsk , the LPR Mission to the JCCC said.
"A shelling from Ukrainian positions targeting Alchevsk was recorded at 3:00 a.m., five HIMARS rockets were fired."
Ukraine has been carrying out a military crackdown against Donbass since 2014. Multiple announcements of ceasefires failed to stabilize the situation. The simmering armed conflict escalated rapidly in February this year, and sent Donbass barrelling towards an unprecedented bloodshed.
Russia intervened on February 24 by launching a special military operation to demilitarize Ukraine and bring peace back to Donbass. *t
